Light Pole Bases & Pads
Lindsay Precast has been Protecting What Matters for more than 50 years. Our precast concrete light pole base products add efficiency and reduce costs, and quality is a given with every one of our precast concrete products. Plus, we provide a full array of precast concrete EV solutions for you as well.
Our light pole bases are precast in our shop, which results in faster, more efficient installation at the jobsite, compared to pouring in place on site. Our reusable molds make pouring precast foundations faster than building custom molds on site using wood, sono tube and other materials. Weather doesn’t affect your timeframe with precast light pole bases, but it can when pouring in place. You can reset and move precast bases and pads, but you can’t with poured-in-place designs if they’re set wrong.
All testing is done in our plant. With poured-in-place light pole bases and pads, you need to take cylinders at your jobsite and take them to be tested. If your test fails, you have to demo and start again with the poured-in-place design. With precast, you know if you need to make your base or pad again before it’s even in the ground.
Our molds for our precast light pole base products are re-used at our plant, saving you money. Poured-in place pole bases and pads require the added expense of material for making the molds on site, plus additional labor costs. Contractors don’t want their workers make concrete products, due in part to their lack of experience in the field. Pouring onsite at military and airport projects requires adherence to the Davis Beacon Act, which drives up labor rates. These regulations don’t impact Lindsay Precast’s precast product manufacturing.
Our precast light pole bases are certified to the standards of the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM), the National Precast Concrete Association (NCPA), and we hold many state certifications including ODOT, FDOT and CDOT. Plus, precast products are smoother, and require no on-site grinding like poured-in-place product. Chamfers are easier, and conduit and j-bolts work better with precast bases and pads.
Lindsay Precast’s light pole bases provide a structurally safe location for charging stations and can serve as a bollard for pedestrian safety. They allow for recessed or surface-mounted electrical junction boxes, and are serviceable to change or upgrade connections, as needed.
Our precast concrete light pole bases are supplied with internal grounding connection to ground the structure onsite. Our precast products can be used as both an EV station and a Light pole base with video surveillance for a well-lit safe user experience.
For your convenience, our precast products come in various size and lengths and can be customized based on your project needs. They can be provided with rectangular footing bases for unique jobsite foundation requirement situations, and they meet most local code and seismic applications.
